Getting a small amount of heat by just burning sticks would be ideal if it can be made small enough though...


Not exactly cheap. But will do what you want safely.


Or, if your cheap, creative and like a little danger.....

I found this very interesting and thought I'd share.

If you, or anyone you know, is still having a hard time losing weight or has Diabetes , Arthritis or Inflammation of any sort . (brain, joints, sinus, bowels)

This guy may have the answer to your problem that you may have not yet explored.

His name is Dr. William Davis MD, a cardiologist. He makes a good case for avoiding all wheat products.

The time line he presents for the explosion in obesity here in America and the vast amount of other health problems just happens to coincide perfectly.

Check it out for yourself.

These videos where taken on the 2012 Low Carb Cruise. If you click videos on the top of the youtube posters page it will open the other videos from the cruise. They have a ton of information on the Paleo (aka low carb high fat) diet. The speakers in the videos from the cruise have Phd's and Md's. Also, there are physical trainers and nutritionists that give presentations.

Paleo, is the way to go...

I built a chainsaw mill a few years back from plans from here - http://www.procutportablesawmills.com/

It works great.

You could however, come up with your own design. It's not rocket science.

Using concrete in a remote location, in the amounts you're requiring, is going to be tough.

Have you considered using the Rammed Earth option of building ?

Advantages; cheap, can use on site materials (if present), straight or curved forms, can start or stop construction as needed, easy to repair or modify and has high thermal mass.

Here's my two cents regarding building and working with concrete. (I've done a fair amount of it)

Concrete (portland cement) is expensive, not to mention loading a mixer, placing and finishing it, is hard work. Once the chemical reaction begins, it waits for
no one.

More info would be helpful.

What type of building are you wanting to build ? (stone, brick, cobb, stick built lumber, log, post and beam, strawbale, etc. etc.)

Basement, slab or crawl space ?


What region are you building in ?
